After that, Bryce Harper drilled one over the wall in left-center, and then cleanup hitter Ryan Zimmerman punctuated the string with a homer of his own to left-center. After a Daniel Murphy flyout that drew mock boos from the Camp Day crowd at Nats Park, Anthony Rendon launched one over the wall in left-center for Washington's fifth home run of the inning.
